Senator O'BYRNE (Tasmania) .- I refer to the subject of airway facilities. I shall be very brief. At page 76 of the report of the Minister for Civil Aviation (Senator Henty) for 1963-64 reference is made to some of the business concessions that are carried on at airports. It states -

At Melbourne Airport, a photography shop was opened in the terminal building and a drycleaning plant and service depot is being established on the airport. The Department is also considering proposals for the letting of the following- business concessions at Melbourne Airport - a florist shop, a motor car showroom, a diagnostic clinic, and an instrument sales store. A chemist shop has opened at the International Terminal Building at Sydney Airport.

My simple inquiry . to the Minister is whether it will be possible to include amongst the shops that are being installed at the Melbourne airport a men's hairdressing saloon. I believe that this would be of great convenience to people waiting for aircraft. There is at present a ladies' hairdresser and I have often thought that there is a need for a men's hairdresser. It would probably be a good business proposition for such a shop to be installed at the Melbourne airport.
